West Milford to use the NIXLE System to provide alerts to residents
The West Milford Police Department has chosen to become involved with the Nixle Service to alert residents in a rapid manner when there is urgent information that needs to be disseminated to the community. This free system allows community members to register to receive email or text notifications directly from the police department and can get instant notices about everything from gas leaks to missing persons, traffic accidents and road closures. Residents can get text messages to their cell phones and/or emails.
The Easement Committee meets at the Clubhouse at 7pm on the first Tuesday of each month. The monthly meeting is an opportunity for any member to discuss or present any issue, be it easement or POA related, they would like addressed.
Many UGL members are frustrated by other boaters and ice sports individuals not obeying NJ state boating and lake laws. Our UGL Security Patrol can only ask boater’s and Ice sports individuals to conform to the law. They have no authority to issue a ticket. This can only be done by the local, county and state police agency.
UGL Security Patrol can be reached at (973) 264-6273.
As a private citizen, you can and should call the NJ Marine Police and file a complaint. It would be helpful to have the boat’s or Sports vehicle’s NJ identification numbers if at all possible.
The number for the NJ Marine Police at the Lake Hopatcong Station is (973) 663-3400.
West Milford Police can also be contacted at (973) 728-2802, however, they will not be able to go on the lake because they are not equipped to do so.
The Passaic County Sheriff’s Office, which patrols our lake normally on weekends during the summer and winter, can also be contacted at (973) 881-4200 or (973) 389-5900.
It is everyone’s job to keep our lake safe and stop unlawful boating and ice sports activities.
